Having old woman arms

Driving to Mumbles this morning I was in awe - as I frequently am - at the beauty of the bay. I am so thankful for the beauty of this place.

Lovely curry last night with Janet and Mike at Mumtaz. A classy place with very nice food, a bit different from your average curry house. They even had a Health Conscious section. I had my starter - chicken tikka salad - from there but not my main course. It was all very nice.

I had decided to wear my pale pink jumper and I was just getting it out of the wardrobe when I stopped. 'Pale pink? Curry? Hmm, maybe not.' Instead I wore a tunic that wouldn't be ruined should I drop a smidgin of curry on it. (I didn't.)
The hair has gone today. With my cousin's funeral on Friday I made a spur of the moment appointment at the hairdresser's this afternoon. It doesn't look too bad in this picture but that's because you can't see all the grey roots.

When I put on weight it goes straight to my hips; when I lose weight it comes off my arms leaving me with 'old woman' limbs. They weren't fat to begin with. And you can bet that if I tried to put on a bit to fill out my arms it would go straight to my hips again. Oh, life can be cruel. Cue the sad dramatic music.

We're never totally happy with ourselves! Every time I get in the lift, I look at my hair and sigh. Then there's only a second to look at my legs and pull a face before I'm at my floor.

Liz , I haven't been a over here for a few weeks and yet again you amaze me with another comical story :-) How do you think of all these tales.. very humourous.

I thought you meant the bit of arm at the top , I have never looked at my arms (bottom half ) as old. But I do have weight on my hips and at this rate I am going to have a BOOTY backside .. hahahaha . Good for dancing said my grandaughter ♥ :-)

You're looking good, Liz! Life isn't fair, though--when I was young I didn't want to wear anything sleeveless because I thought my arms were too skinny. Now I don't wear anything sleeveless because my arms are too fat. Sigh.
